We are a family of six. I have been reading this forum for several months. We had originally decided on AMI for next March. Now that two of our kids are in high school, spring break is becoming the only time we can travel. We normally like to travel during off-season times. Is the water even swimmable in March? The kids will definitely want to swim, when would be the best time of year to travel in terms of lower crowds and warm gulf water? Also can you point me in the direction of where to stay? We would like a house, not a condo, preferably with a pool. Are all the beaches on AMI public or are there private beaches as well?
